Angry New Yorkers Protest AOC and Democrats as City Deals with 10,000 Illegal Immigrants Arriving Per Month

During a press conference outside the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, which is being used as a shelter for illegal immigrants, Democratic lawmakers faced strong vocal and confrontational protests from demonstrators, who are letting the leftist politicians know that they have had enough.

The protesters chanted slogans such as “Send them back!” and “Close the border!” while loudly expressing their discontent with the lawmakers’ stance on immigration.

As Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her colleagues attempted to address the problems created by Biden’s Border Crisis and discuss their visit to the center, they were repeatedly interrupted by the protesters.

One demonstrator used a megaphone to shout, “Illegal immigration is not right! Respect the constitution, close the border!” as Ocasio-Cortez tried to convey her message.

Despite the disruptive atmosphere, Ocasio-Cortez stressed the urgent need for increased federal resources to support cities and municipalities dealing with the migrant crisis. She also advocated for providing work authorizations to migrants to enable them to contribute to the workforce legally and alleviate the strain on public systems.

The Roosevelt Hotel has transformed into an arrival center for illegal migrants, offering services such as food, vaccinations, and caseworker assistance.

In attendance at the press conference were various Democratic representatives, including Veronica Escobar, Sylvia Garcia, Joaquin Castro of Texas, Nydia Velazquez, Jerrold Nadler of New York, Jesús García, Delia Ramirez, Mike Quigley of Illinois, Jimmy Gomez, Tony Cárdenas of California, and Rob Menendez of New Jersey.

Earlier in September, Mayor Eric Adams of New York City delivered his most dire forecast to date regarding the future of the country’s largest city, which has been contending with a surge of over 110,000 illegal immigrants arriving since the previous year.

“Let me tell you something, New Yorkers. Never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this. I don’t see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City,” Adams said during a Town Hall meeting. “We’re getting 10,000 migrants a month.”

“We had a $12 billion deficit that we’re going to have to cut. Every service in this city is going to be impacted. All of us,” Adams said. “It’s going to come to your neighborhoods. All of us are going to be impacted by this. I said it last year when we had 15,000. I’m telling you now with 110,000. The city we knew we’re about to lose. And we’re all in this together.”
